This weekend I am showing at a pop up market on Bleeker street in the city and am making prints to sell there.......these are some examples. It is interesting working small, I am trying things I had not thought of and working tighter...........a nice change from my normal process.

I think I will stick with this palate for this week and see what develops.....
I will be printing live at the QAS which takes place in Webster Hall in the city from 6 to midnight......

the prints have reached a phase where I am starting to want the imagery to be more finished......not sure I can resolve this with the process I am using where the ink has to stay wet to print at home....if the ink were to dry I would have to print at a studio with a press.........this also has something to do with the size of the paper I am working on......

The print above was from this morning........a few layers on this one. I call it time exposure......as if the sun is moving in space and captured at different moments.
My good friend Andrew Welt stopped by yesterday for a visit.....he has been a great supporter of my work for many years now. He got right to work creating a print of his own in the studio.

On the 26th I will be printing "live" at Webster Hall in NYC. The event is called the QAS, Quarterly Art Soiree....artists, musicians, poets, all converge for an evening of whatever happens..........I will also read a couple of poems for fun.
Most of the work is ready for the show on March 8 at Art on A gallery, now I have to wrap everything up and hang the show soon.

I thought I had a great idea last night.....create around 100 figures and place speakers in each.....around 1 foot in height. Each speaker would have a voice recording of an individual voice in a choir, the viewer would hear each and be able to experience the choir. Found out it has been done.......argh!

These two images are different orientations of the piece I created today....Each one has a different story to tell I think. I was experimenting with a black and white palate........put a bit of red in for contrast.This is the second piece I created today. I would like to continue this project, but money is getting a bit tight, the paper is expensive and I could do several prints a day if I could afford it. I am going to research Kickstarter, to see if there is a way I can raise funds for materials.

I have been reading an thinking about this a bit lately, how something said is contingent on what was said before, how words need context.
So I got excited to see this work, as well as the work of my friend Marie Kazalia who is working with Kanji script in a somewhat tangential manor.
I have been experimenting with this process for many years. The page above is a project I was working on when I first started making artwork as a way to create an abstract visual language. I think they work on a subliminal level to unlock the potential subconscious expression of thought.

First one this morning.........did not get a chance to print yesterday, we had a big snow storm and had to dig my way out........I was experimenting here with foreground background relationships.....creating a loose grid as the background.
